Tporter - FAQS

A: TPorter should be cleaned and disinfected between every use, immediately after a soiled TEE probe is removed, including the carry tray and lid prior to each use. Discard Tie-Bands after single use. Clean and disinfect TPorter inside and outside following surface cleaner/disinfectant directions for wetted contact times. Do NOT use high pressure SPD washers or sterilizers to reprocess TPorter. Do NOT use cart cleaner/washer systems to reprocess TPorter.

A: QwikDry is effective in removing moisture from the TEE/TOE probe shaft after high-level disinfection has occurred. A wet probe can capture airborne particulate present in the environment and contaminate the TEE/TOE probe. Storage of a wet TEE/TOE probe can lead to contamination via waterborne bacteria. A properly dried TEE/TOE probe is critical in all aspects of the reprocessing cycle.

A: No, the TPorter is designed only for TEE/TOE probes with special compartments to protect and hold all aspects of the TEE/TOE probe safely and securely during transport.
